Members of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG), have started their planned indefinite strike today.
The Association is protesting among other things poor conditions of service and the frustrations the Technical Universities encounter in getting accreditation for academic programs.
Even though there has been a directive from the National Labour Commission (NLC) to call off the strike and negotiate about this issue on Wednesday, 16th June 2021, TUTAG has decided to carry on.
According to Citi News, the National President of TUTAG, Dr. Michael Akurugu, said that “the strike is in force pending the meeting with the Labour Commission.”
According to him, the decision was taken at their congress and cannot be reversed by one person.
“It is a congress decision for us to go on strike, and so we are going to meet the NLC on Wednesday and listen to what they have to say, but for now nothing is going to change until we know what the NLC has for us,” Akurugu said.
